I'm planning to go out on my own next year and looking at what 12" chipper to get....I like the look of the Bandit 12XP but what is peoples honest opinions on these different models? Anyone purchased a 12" machine recently...is there much price difference between these brands or dose it just come down to who is nearest to me?

For the most part,--at least around here, you have to take what ever comes up for sale. I had an old 12" unknown brand with a VM Motri air cooled diesel on it and it did ok as far as chipping BUT we had to do way too much extra cutting to get stuf in it.
We now have a Vermeer 1600-a and it does some serious eating without all the extra trimming we used to do.
Point is,---check around and see what is available in your area.
